    I saw a lot of sites when i was researching for keywords i saw that a lot of sites had a lot of backlinks but for all keywords.


    When i searched to see how many backlinks are created just for the specific keyword i found that are less backlinks pointing with that keyword.

    What do you think if Site A has 5000 Backlinks and we Have site B and we are trying to rank it vs Site A.

    But what we don't know is that Site A has just only 200 Backlinks for the specific keyword that we are trying to rank the other 4800 Links are coming for different other keywords.

    So what do you guys thing if we create 500 Backlinks and we have a good ON SEO Site with that keyword can we outscore the Site A for that keyword...?

    Good point raised. I would say that you should be able to outrank site A for the keyword you are trying to rank for by having good on site seo and outnumbering the amount of backlinks for that given keyword. Google puts a great deal of emphasis on keywords used for links as it's ranking system. There are other factors to consider, too, such as contextual links vs low quality links, domain age, authority, etc. But I would definitely consider their ranking for that specific keyword as the amount of keyword specific links, rather than total overall backlinks they have (as you described) as a determination of difficulty or ease to outrank them.

    Yeah basically if the keyword isn't in the domain (We see a lot of domains that do not have the keywords on Domain are ranking for Specific keywords that we want to rank but they first) i think that we do not have to consider also the keyword in domain as difficulty in this case as i tried with a Blogspot blog i achieved to outrank the competitor even that he had an old domain name 4Years.

    So i wanted to let others here to check out more this kind of competitor checking while they are trying to outrank for the specific keyword.

    here what you have to do :

    Optimize your ON site , you know how it goes this has been explained a lot of time here.

    Check how many Backlinks has that specific keyword if it has 500 PR0 Backlinks try to make at least 100 PR1+ Backlinks.

    Try to mix the Backlinks like (Article Directories , Directories Submitting , Blog Commenting , Profile Links etc)

    And as i tested this was successful for me but i wanted to get others ideas because here are peoples with a lot of more experiences than me on SEO.

    Depends on the quality of link. DMOZ is the best link on the internet, and they usually require you use non-keyword titles, usually the real name of your company or site. If they have a ton of high quality natural links (which usually wouldnt have specific anchor text) I think they would still outrank you for that specific keyword.

    Depends on age as well, if they've been there for a while, and you're newer, there's a less chance of you outranking them as well.

    Search g00gle with the search strings:

    intitle:keyword you're competing for inurl:keyword you're competing for

    So.. for example.. dog training collars

    intitle:dog training collars inurl:dog training collars

    Those two search strings will deliver the number of sites that are using that as a title, and the number of sites that have have the anchor tag pointing to that site for that keyword.
